so... you know those moments or things or whatever that come, unknowingly from now where... those moments that seem to change your perspective so dramatically... open your eyes... enlighten and inspire...? i just had one.
what you see below are 4,018 photographs, compiled one day at a time... week by week. month by month. year by year. all self-shot or directed by jeff harris. In 1999, harris decided to start a project in which he would have one photograph of himself made everyday. Whether it be by his own self-shot means or by whomever he had to assist him, an image was to be made everyday. Now, I'm sure we have all seen those self portrait "one photo a day" projects where individuals take their self portrait, straight on and then play the images in a time lapse, showing progression of time and such... this project, is nothing like that... this is over a decade of a life, with all its passings, adventures, relationships, experiences, emotions, and more.
i dont really know how to sum this up or anything, so i know im rambling... but... if you enjoy life, appreciate time, write in a journal, think about the past, the present, the future... if you seek emotion, adventure, wonder, or amazement... if you need inspiration, stoke, motivation, hope... i would really suggest taking a look at Jeff Harris.
i doubt you will be disappointed.
